Part-time Position / 15-25 Hours Per Week (negotiable) / Works Remotely

The Association of Arts Administration Educators (AAAE) seeks an enthusiastic, self-directed and organized individual to serve as its part-time Programs & Operations Manager. The ideal candidate will be experienced in communications and general non-profit operations, and possess some knowledge of arts administration education and the professional field at large.

The ability to stay focused and productive in a self-directed environment is critical to this role, as this is a remote position with limited oversight and supervision. The ideal candidate will be able to take initiative and follow through on multiple projects simultaneously, while maintaining a high level of professionalism. Strong written and verbal communication skills, as well as attention to detail, are important. The ability to maintain a friendly and professional disposition with all members and stakeholders is also paramount, as this position is most often the front-line of interaction for the organization’s members.

The Programs & Operations Manager is responsible for leading AAAE’s member services and general operations. Responsibilities include responding to member requests, leading the communications activities of the organization, maintaining AAAE’s online infrastructure, and working with the Executive Director to plan and facilitate the annual conference. The Programs & Operations Manager reports directly to the Executive Director and regularly interacts with members at all levels of AAAE, including its Board of Directors. Some travel is required for this position, both domestic and international (approximately 1 trip per year in relation to the annual conference).

While the Programs & Operations Manager position is currently a part-time position, there is opportunity to help grow the capacity of the organization to support a full-time role in the future.
